Angler is a sea-life focused restaurant with views of the expansive wood burning hearth as well of the San Francisco Bay from Chef Joshua Skenes and Saison Hospitality. Each day’s inspiration is drawn from the products themselves and is an articulation of their natural flavors, served at their peak taste. We work with a small group of fishermen, hunters, gatherers, ranchers, and farmers to find and follow microclimates that produce the highest quality products in local existence. All of the cooking revolves around open wood fire and a fireplace designed for Chef Skenes's unique methodology, techniques, and tools for extracting the best tastes in our products. The expansive cellar features a particular emphasis on the wines of Burgundy as well as benchmark producers from our backyard in Napa and Sonoma. The bar program features carefully curated spirits from well-known and small-batched distillers, to specially sourced selections that date back sev

Went the last night before the madness and shutdown. And grimaced a bit when the previously not-unusual spiel was given that all dishes are meant to be shared. The radicchio salad is a standout unique signature dish! Everything tasted and was presented well, though some of the dishes sizing is a letdown. View of the Bay Bridge is wonderful.

Celebrated my BF 40th Birthday here. The exterior and interior were exquisite! Food + Service was really on point! Besides the food, the cocktails and beverages were carefully crafted + super wonderful! I would share this place with everyone and will be back 😉

Incredible hospitality and delicious thoughtful cuisine. If you enjoy putting your dining experience into the hands of others definitely let them cook for you. House made butter is outstanding, wine list extensive and all around one of the more enjoyable meals in recent memory.

Superb cuisine, beautiful decor and location. Only two things need refining at Angler: the place is very noisy in the evenings, and wait staff interrupted conversation at our table many times.

The restaurant's menu is designed as shared plates. We thought the food was not outstanding and super expensive for what you get. The cocktails and wine were also very expensive and the pours were not big.

Honestly did not feel that it was worth the money. The music was way too loud and did not fit - 90s rock really?!

Good cavalier, oysters and scallops. Roasted vegetables also hit the spot. Nice burgundy wines to pair. Service is borderline stuffy/pretentious. Great for a warm day when you can sit outside and just grab a glass of wine/appetizer.

The only negative was the 70’s pop music. But the food, cocktails, service were outstanding and unique.

The staff seems overwhelmed by the number of tables. The music is so loud that the backwaiter could not hear and tried multiple times to clear our plates even though we told him we were not finished. The oysters and sea urchin were fantastic but the swordfish and scallops were only fair especially considering the price. The flavor was bland the dishes were served cold and only seared on one side. This restaurant is way overpriced for the quality of the food, service and ambiance. We would definitely not return.

Overall good, we indicated the occasion was for a birthday. Staff acknowledged the birthday person in the beginning, but in the end we did even get a candle or birthday gesture in the end at all. Felt bad when we left.

The food & service was great, but I ordered The wine and after looking at my bill today I was charged the wrong wine. I ordered The Vincent Pinard Flor at $77 a bottle, the wine apparently brought to me was The Vincent Pinard Chene Marchand at $140! I was brought the wrong wine and over charged $63! Please refund my $63!!!

Beautiful room, attentive service, creative cooking. But some spices and sauces overpowered the food.

The intelligence displayed in the vegetables made us proud. If one restaurant said SF now, this is it. I will go again.
